Spotlight on Neo-noir

Shadows and light. Horizontal blinds and cigarette smoke. Private dicks and dames in the driver seat. Given how recognizable aspects of classic film noir became, they've naturally lent to reference, parody and experimentation.

Noir influenced, post-noir, neo-noir? Call it what you will. Take the familiar as a starting point, translate the setting and play with conventions: there's always more juice to squeeze out of this pulp.
